    We are having sea bass which at the tasting I really liked. My other option was salmon which I don't care for

    If I remember correctly when another Knottie went I believe she said the ones they recommended were chillean sea bass, red snapper and I want to say swordfish maybe??

    Sorry for being so vague. Just wanted to get some ideas considering I dont know one from the other and  when they present me with the suggestions I want to at least act like I have a clue!

    Chiliean sea bass is amazing! It is a melt in your mouth type of fish, if you can get that one I would. It is also fairly mild so I think most people like it.

     I third Chilean Seabass.  I don't eat fish (of any kind.. yes that includes shrimp).  My Fiance really like Chilean Seabass, so he was excited to see it on our potential menu

    Hi ladies, so exciting! I just went 2 weeks ago to pick our menu.  We chose the Chateaubriand, Potato-Encrusted Chilian Sea Bass, and the Chicken with asiago and spinach. They also ask you to choose a duet (combo salad and appetizer). They have pictures of your choices. The intermezzo is lemon sorbet. They also go over all the cocktail hour stations. You pick your pasta sauces, stirfry meats, etc. They pretty much have everything you can think of at cocktail hour but they will take more suggestions if you have more ideas. They walk you through each thing so it's really a breeze. You'll also pick your linens/napkin fabric and discuss the cake. Let me know if you have any questions!!

    One month to go!! YA!

    Chloe, I am so excited for you! Please come back and report about it. I think your guests would prefer either the chilean sea bass or the seafood tower which I heard is very good too.

    Rinski, did they try to push that seafood tower on you first? I think it's salmon, swordfish and shrimp? A friend told me they really push that. I would guess since chilean sea bass is expensive.  Your meals would be just what I would pick..

    Hmmm... I know the seabass is expensive, but wouldnt the tower actually provide more of a selection?? Wouldn't a fish person be happy to see 3 different selections in one meal?  Again I despise fish so I dunno! lol

    Rinski thanks so much for the info!! :) We want pictures!!!

    I'm sure they are similar in price - so maybe seabass harder to come by for a large group?

    I do know at a friend's wedding that guests were raving about that 3 fish option. Maybe just mention that neither of you favor fish and what would be universally preferred for the guests.

    We picked the seabass but it was a big discussion between DH and I between swordfish and seabass.  I think red snapper and salmon were definitely the other options though I think they'll do whatever you ask, really.  :)  That's why I love them!!  Anyway, the seabass was FAB!  And we didn't eat it until we got home that night and reheated it in the microwave!!

    BTW, I don't remember a seafood tower option...!  Sounds interesting...

    Of course I'll share pictures! Interesting, she didn't even mention the seafood tower but I love chilian sea bass so I wouldn't have taken anything else.

    Has anyone else picked a bakery? I went for a cake tasting at Palermos and Le Petit Gateau. Over the phone, I felt like the Venetian was pushing me to go to Le Petit but I found Palermo's cakes much prettier/neater.  Although, Le Petit was willing to throw in more (an extra tier, any shape, etc).

    We are doing a trio of a lobster claw, jumbo shrimp and scallop for a seafood dinner just to do something a little different and not so filling because our cocktail hour at Season's is going to be huge. They can do the same type of thing for you if you are interested.

    I also love a scallop dish or a crab cake.  It doesn't have to be a piece of fish if you don't love that type of fish.

    Rinski I was directed to Le Petit. I was told they were dealing with only them now. We went for our tasting and loved them and the staff. They also said they could replicate the pic we showed them (and have done it before) in buttercream. I'm also getting my bridal shower cake from them as well
